Dulce Wagon

August 23rd, 2010

Dulce is a small town in Northern New Mexico. This old wagon is standing in the middle of the town. I thought is was a good photography subject so I took few shots of it. Now that I went back to get more information about it, I had no idea this town had such a mysterious reputations.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM. Developed in Adobe Lightroom, adjustments in Adobe Photoshop.

Very interesting subject.. I really like the blue. I can't tell if you used HDR or not.

It's just a little too cluttered for my desktop.. but that's just my opinion.

i like this. the blue isn't too bright as to take away from the photo. and that, contrasted with the worn look of the wagon itself and the rusting wheels and suspension parts, is what makes this a great photo. and while i know you didn't make the wagon or paint it (at least, that's my assumption), you captured an essence of its life.

well done.

like the previous poster i probably wouldn't use this as a desktop wallpaper, but i think it would make a great picture to hang in a home.

This is very rich and attractive without all that HDR silliness. Thanks for providing some beautiful desktops that aren't saccharine.

Yeah, possibly a bit cluttered, but I think you did the best with what you had.

Interesting subject matter, great composition, In fact all the elements that make a wonderful image.

In photoshop I reduced the saturation to about -23. This gentled the blue background and made it more recessive. Your tastes may vary.

Thank you for your comments so far. I wanted to say that this isn't an HDR photo, although it may look like it.
I'm also grateful for IFL to publish 2 desktops of my creation in a row! This one has been in the Loupe for a long time.

It's interesting that people find the colours to saturated, and I'm taking notes for the future.

it's a great shot, but like dude said it's a little to cluttered for a desktop

i can see an car's brake light through the slats of the traincar. kind of takes a bit of the nostalgia effect away for me.

I like the subject, I love weathered & worn things like this.

Would have preferred the wagon to be sharper, more detail in that wood. It's a little busy for a wallpaper.

This excellent photo would be a good parting gift for someone retiring from the Railway ...

Definitely not wallpaper material but I'm glad it came through the Loupe.

King Bubba-Lou ... I don't think that is a brake Light.
Nice work Mr. Clairo

Nothing to improve, but it does look good when converted to B/W.

I like everything about this. The color of the weathered paint on the wood is wonderfully muted and vibrant all at the same time. I think it's OK for a desktop. Some people like minimalist photos for desktop backgrounds (I do myself), but lately I've found myself also using some very wild and busy stuff too. However, this shot is not wild and busy.

I was getting pretty tired and bored with all the water and sky photos lately. Then this photo came along like a breath of fresh air. Thanks!

I don't have any suggestions for this particular shot, but I would like to see a series of shots of more of this car and other cars on this train.

I rather like the saturation, as is. The contrast of the blue and the green is great.

Busy for a wallpaper, but that does not say anything about the photograph. I would use it in screen saver rotation.
